To book go online Book My Vaccine or call the COVID Vaccine Healthline 0800 28 29 26

Appointments only 

 
     

We are vaccinating people 12 years and older who live in Northland.

To book a vaccination, call the COVID Vaccination Healthline on 0800 28 29 26 (8am to 8pm, 7 days) and they will make a booking for you and answer any questions you may have, or booking online at BookMyVaccine.nz. 

There are also a number of pharmacies, Māori Health Providers and general practices in Northland offering the COVID-19 vaccination programme. If you have not already heard from them, call them or go to Healthpoint or www.karawhiua.nz to find out more.

Note:

  • Vaccinations are completely free and are one of the most powerful tools against COVID-19.
  • Two doses of the Pfizer vaccine are how we protect each other, our whānau, and our community, including against the delta variant of the virus.
  • When you book, it’s a good idea to have your NHI (National Health Index) number handy. You don’t need it to book but it will make the process quicker for you. You’ll find your NHI number on a prescription or prescription receipt, x-ray or test result, or a letter from the hospital.
  • It is really important that you provide your full legal name – not an alias name or a nickname. 
  • Please do not turn up any earlier than 15 minutes prior to your appointment and we ask that you respect our COVID-19 Vaccination Community Clinic staff, who are working tirelessly to vaccinate our community.
  • The wait time after COVID vaccinations is now be a minimum of 15 minutes instead of 20 minutes.  

Deciding to get your vaccination at a drive-through centre

  • Drive-through vaccination is only suitable for passenger cars or SUVs. Unfortunately, we cannot accept motorbikes, trucks, or other high-sided vehicles at drive-through centres.
  • If you have a history of fainting or other serious reactions following vaccinations, we recommend you don’t get your vaccination in a drive-through vaccination centre.
  • Private conversations are more challenging at a drive-through site. If you need a detailed conversation about your vaccination, call your GP or Healthline first or attend a non-drive-through vaccination centre.
  • If you have symptoms of COVID-19 or are required to self-isolate (including because you are waiting for your test results), do not come to your vaccination appointment. This applies to all vaccination centres, including drive-through vaccination.

Getting your vaccination at a drive-through vaccination centre

  • Where possible, wear a face covering.
  • Come prepared in case you need to wait in queue for a period of time.
  • Sit next to a car door that can be opened.
  • Wear clothing allowing the vaccinator easy access to your upper arm. You should expect to receive the vaccine in the arm closest to the car window.
  • Always stay in your vehicle, unless you are asked to step out by vaccination staff.                                                           

All appointment bookings will default to six-weeks between first and second doses.

There will be people who have already been fully vaccinated, and their two doses may have been closer together than six-weeks. Please be assured that this is fine - the Pfizer vaccine is highly effective if people have both doses, at least three weeks apart. 

For information about vaccine use for 12-15 year olds, visit Ministry of Health website.

Proof of Vaccination

If you need formal proof of your COVID-19 vaccination for international travel, you can request a vaccination confirmation letter from the Ministry of Health.

To request a vaccination letter for overseas travel, fill out the proof of COVID-19 vaccination form

Influenza Vaccination

If you are over 65 years, you may choose to have your Influenza vaccination before your COVID-19 vaccination. You will need to wait for 14 days after your flu vaccination before you have your COVID-19 vaccination. If you have any questions, please talk with your health provider.
